Been saying I was gonna build one of these for a while. Found a 20” box fan at the big box store for 18 dollars last week that was actually American made so I grabbed it. I really liked the design of carbides floor unit and wanted to go in that direction until reality set in and I realized I didnt have enough free floor space for one. I then considered one that flush mounted to the ceiling joists but one again it wasnt an ideal solution since I didnt have a open space close to an outlet. The pics show what I came up with. Using a two stage filter (sounds high tech eh??) which consists of a fiberglas outter 1” filter and a higher effeciency 1” filter to the inside of that. Since my basment is only 900 square feet or so, this thing should move enough cubic feet to completely turn the air over several times an hour…as long as the garage door is closed anyhow…lol We shall see how it works.
